Learn how to save water and save cash!
Water is a precious resource. Watercare is asking everyone to reduce indoor water use by at least 20 litres a day - that's two buckets of water. It may seem like a lot, but by making small changes to your daily routine it's really easy to do.
In this DIY Interactive Water Check, we will ask you questions about your household and your current water usage. Based on your answers, we will send you a personalised water saving letter with recommendations to help you save water and money (only available for Auckland residents).
Before we start, you might want to gather the following things: screw driver, damp cloth, bucket, measuring jug and a stopwatch (most cellphones have one).
Take your time working through the 5 sections below. You can open and close sections by clicking on the triangle on the right. For the best results we encourage you to complete all questions and tests, which will take approximately 25-35 minutes.
You can do the sections in any order and skip questions if they're too tricky. Use the comment box below each section to add more details or ask questions.
You don't have to finish in one go, just click the button Save my answers and we will send you a link to continue your DIY Interactive Water Check later. Once you've finished, click Submit my answers to send us your answers.
